This question has come up so many times before... smile


Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.
Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Water can flow, or it can Crash.

Posted:Wear thick clothes (that aren't flammable for chrissakes!) and goggles. Check the ground and surronding area is damp so nothing catches alight.

And make sure no one is anywhere near you.

Posted:You are kiddin, right?

You're not seriously going to tie some wire wool to fire poi and 'see what happens', eh?

Please don't. There's no need to use flying molten metal to prove how macho you are.

Research it properly (everything is available on this site... go to search and look for 'wire wool' or 'sparkly poi'). Research the dangers properly.

Don't do it by yourself... make sure you have a safety and someone who is experienced using this with you.

Of course, maybe you were going to do all this anyways. Maybe you were just kidding with the posts - if so, that's great smile

Take care
